Facebook, Google, Twitter, and others menace to leave Pakistan over expurgating digital content

At the beginning of this week, Pakistan prime minister Mr. Imran khan accorded the information technology authorities to obscure and withdraw digital content that causes any sort of alienation, suffering, or rebellion towards the Pakistan government in order to evade from harming their integrity, defense, as well as religion.

A firm answer to that was a threat given by the global international companies Google, Facebook, Twitter, and many more to leave the South Asian country who granted the blanket powers.

This might not be the first time that global companies have had a concern about the situation, as the same happened all the way back in February which too was proposed by Imran Khan.

According to the coalition’s words, “The draconian data localization requirements will damage the ability of people to access free and open internet and shut Pakistan’s digital economy off from the rest of the world. It’s chilling to see the PTA’s powers expanded, allowing them to force social media companies to violate established human rights norms on privacy and freedom of expression,”

The statement continues stating, “If Pakistan wants to be an attractive destination for technology investment and realize its goal of digital transformation, we urge the government to work with industry on practical, clear rules that protect the benefits of the internet and keep people safe from harm,”

The latest rule also specifies that if any social media platforms, technology channels, or any internet services unsucceeded to censor the content judged to be expurgating to Islam, will be fined a hefty price of $3.14 million.

This new rule is said to have come after the recent ban of the insanely popular game PUBG as well as the provisionally blocked TikTok, the reason being too inappropriate.
